Artist Kristin Lora in Seattle designs all kinds of gorgeous and funky earrings but these of course are the best. (Although her deer head brooch is pretty dang cute.) The pair measure approximately 1.5″ tall, are made of plastic and sterling silver and are one of a kind. They are $118.00.
Thanks to the mighty Swagster Julie G. for this find.

Remember the joy of getting THE prize you wanted out of the vending machine? When I was little my Mom would give me a dime or so to try for the one I wanted on every trip to the drugstore. Can’t remember what I was obsessed with now. A blue cat springs to mind. But I never got it randomly. So one day we’re in the store and she sees the vending repair guy filling the machines and asks him if she can just buy the prizes I wanted. He gave us handfuls for free. I made out like a bandit that day!
Well “Stuff Maya Makes” is almost just like that. All of her charms are good and all of them are under $5. Besides jewelry you use them as cell phone mascots, zipper pulls, you name it. The colored enamel charms are 2-D and the silver and bronze charms are 3-D.
Here’s another idea for Father’s Day. This is a box for your gentleman’s accessories. Cufflinks, tie pins, watches and chains all have their place. It’s made in New Zealand from Rimu on ply with a hinged lid. It also comes with a sliding tray. The dimensions are 194 x 95 x 70mm. The price is (I believe) $91.99 New Zealand Dollars or approximately $70 USD. Order now because it has a long way to go to get to you.
